Taste of Winter offering something for everyone
Now that it’s obvious that winter isn’t going anywhere soon, it’s time to focus on the activities offered by the Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s Taste of Winter program.
There’s something for everyone, says CBRM’s recreation program co-ordinator Joe Costello.
“It is important that our residents feel there are options for active living, outdoor and indoor fun, and entertaining events happening in the winter,” said Costello. “We’ve de- signed Taste of Winter with accessibility in mind while also looking at a diverse set of activities and neighbourhoods as possible.”
Events kicked off Sunday, and continue today at the Schooner Curling Club in Whitney Pier for a learn-to-curl session at 7 p.m. open to anyone age 19 and older.
Old-fashioned wagon rides will be taking place at Sydney’s Wentworth Park on Feb. 26 at 1 p.m., as well on March 24 at 6 p.m. and at Colliery Land Park in New Waterford on March 12 at 1 p.m. A seniors social will take place at the Sydney Mines Seniors and Pensioners Club at 2 p.m., Feb. 28, at the Louisbourg Firehall on March 14 at 2 p.m., and at Glace Bay’s Savoy Theatre on March 29 at 2 p.m.
The events run into March with the annual Louisbourg Slush Run and Walk at 9 a.m., March 4, at George D. Lewis School. Also that day, CBRM recreation will host a snow day on the Sydney waterfront from 12-2 p.m.
On March 11, a ski bus will go by Cape Breton University, the waterfront and Sydney on its way to Ski Ben Eoin.
